I Am PewDiePie
PewDiePie or PewDie if you prefer to save a second is the most subscribed YouTube Video personality OF ALL TIME. Like many of you… I never heard of the dude. Well until a month ago, when a friend bashed this guys very being I didn’t know he existed. Sorry Mister Pew.
Water Cooler Fact
He is a Swedish gamer who’s true identity (Drum roll please) is Felix Kjellberg. His career started around three years ago in 2010 with him making videos of himself reacting to games he would play live.
Still doesn’t ring any bells? I don’t blame ya.
A lot of gamers find him pretty annoying and for good reason. He’s a grown man who has a gift. A whining gift. GAWD! It’s hard to put up with to put it nicely. I’ve only seen one of his videos and I couldn’t make it all the way through without hitting mute and questioning if I should cut myself.
So why should YOU know him?
You got me. What you expect answers here? Fine. Here's one. I was curious to know who the most subscribed YouTube person is and to learn it isn’t Lady Gaga gives me hope dear world there's something worth fight for. So I Googled this fool-e-o and what I learned was he’s actually a pretty decent dude.
"Yeah but his videos" --- Are still annoying. WORD Braaa. Word.
Since being on YouTube he’s donated over $30,000.00 to charities. We can still hate him for his videos but come on, that’s a good guy move. He’s found a way to make money of the internet, he’s internet famous and I’m sure he could use the money, hell who couldn’t nowadays? I give him kudos for that move.
And then I take away said kudos for being such a pushover!!!
Saaaaay what? While doing some investigating I found out he stopped using rape jokes in his game reviews because fans were offended. Not only that but he issued a public apology. Give me a break. Click here if you want to know the top 5 game disses every gamer should use and abuse.
I get where fans are coming from. Not everyone is going to agree with what you say, but come on that’s classic gamer talk. People need to relax. This is how I recommend people deal with audiences who get a bit too excited.
I really don’t get how this guy is Internet Famous. I’m hoping someone reading this will shed some light on this mystery and reveal that magic X-Factor which got him to this status. Maybe he was the first to do what he did? Maybe those voices he does are “cute” to some people? Maybe he represents what we all feel like playing certain overrated games like Halo.
Maybe…What do you think? Where do you stand with PewDiePie?
